Causes of Grey Hair
Nutritional deficiencies are among the chief causes of premature greying of hair. Therefore, it is important to ensure that you take a healthy nutritious diet. Hair also starts to become gray due to a reduction in the production of the dark pigment – melanin in the hair roots.
Some health problems can also lead to the greying of hair. For example, health disorders such as thyroid and anemia can cause hair to become premature gray. Those who suffer from ailments of the stomach are also prone. Diseases affecting the small intestine like celiac disease, Crohn’s disease, tapeworms and other gut-related problems can be linked to greying of hair.
Ayurveda and Grey Hair
As per Ayurveda, this condition is called palitya or akala palitya (premature graying of hair).So, according to Ayurveda, greying hair is a Pitta disorder that occurs due to the imbalance of Pitta ( related to Fire and Water).
Excessive Pitta in the sebaceous glands which reside at the hair roots,can also result in hair loss and graying prematurely.
Pitta related habits such as excess passion, excess anger and physical strain results in graying of hair. One must also avoid high Pitta beverages like alcohol, tea and coffee. Intake of spicy, oily, salty and sour, fermented foods along with meat can aggravate Pitta.
